a gum deal

Posted by Jeni in Ad Infinitum | 10 September 2009

I came into London on the 9.36 train having been to the dentist. 5 Nurofen later my mouth still felt like a wild pony had kicked me in the New Forest. Sounds like an anatomical euphemism.

The show was not as hard as I thought it was going to be what with my mouth and all.

Ross Noble was very funny....I haven't told Jim yet that I started the interview by saying 'That not many people will know you', Ross leapt on it as the worst intro he'd ever had. He was very, very funny.

I felt dreadful what with my mauled mouth so I went to see 'Inglorious Basterds' in Leicester Square.

I loved it, I think Tarantino is a fine, fine director. The sound, the story the explosions. Brad Pitt, I sat all on my own in M22 eating my bag of chocolate bits and crying when one of the gang shot Hitler. I recommend it to anyone who is either Jewish or not.

I then went to HOGARTH BROWNE'S private view of his five stained glass windows. Unique vision. l shall definitely have him on the show. And then it was the overland back to the Junction, a quick walk to the flat, into my emails and The Beatles on BBC 4 and now it's a baguette with honey, a call to jim and then bed with Terry Frisby's book, Kisses on a Postcard.

I may have to resort to some more pain killers if I want to sleep. There is nothing harmonious about aging gums.

night night thee you thoon.

Hi Jeni

Glad your back and from the sound of it so are you! Missed your travel tales and your sense of humour and compassion. Welcome home.

Love June

I always thought neurofen was a product made by those 'evil' pharmaceutical companies that make MMR jabs.

So, it's okay to benefit when you have a sore gob, even though you ignorantly think they're giving poor Timmy down the road autism?

Dear oh dear.
